The Australian Resuscitation Council says “for every minute defibrillation is delayed their is a 10% reduction in survival”

Why do this?
The Key To Survival in Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the “Time to First Shock.”
The key to a community heart safe program and the success rate of CPR is based on early defibrillation. The time to first shock is the critical factor that determines your success in Sudden Cardiac Arrest. For every minute that defibrillation is delayed there is a 10% reduction in survival. So if it takes 10 minutes to go and get an AED and put it on someone then things are not looking great according to the “stats” from the Australian Resuscitation Council.
Ambulance response times are good but in country areas help is sometimes not as close at hand as we need. We need to help ourselves and you the general public can help save a life with the timely use of an AED. If its more than 10 minutes away you need one closer.
“Modern AED’s are simple to use and with training will improve pad placement and the time it takes to deliver a first shock. Modern public access AED’s are simple to use and can be used by anyone to help in a Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Its not just older people, 4 people under 35 have a Sudden Cardiac Arrest in Australia every week. The city of Seattle in the USA has an effective public education and AED program. If we could emulate their success we could save around 34 Australians a day or 12,000 a year.” Its worth a try isn’t it.
News reports show a 21 year old Sunshine Coast woman was saved by the quick thinking of those around her and timely access to an AED after she almost died from a massive heart attack while using a rowing machine.

“The survival rate for cardiac arrest in King County Seattle has risen from 27% in 2002 and hit an all-time high of 62% in 2013.” If we could do as well as them look how many more people we could save everyday.
